Taking multi-tasking to new heights (or depths, depending on your perspective), Cynthia Ruchti makes potato corn chowder for her husband of 37 years, loves on her three kids and five grandchildren, writes and produces a daily radio broadcast called THE HEARTBEAT OF THE HOME, edits and writes for the radio ministry magazine Backyard Friends, writes devotionals for, is the current president of the 2,000-member American Christian Fiction Writers, and in 2010 will see the release of her debut novel--They Almost Always Come Home by Abingdon Press--and a Christmas collection novella, The Heart's Harbor in A Door County Christmas by Barbour Publishing. She writes stories of Hope-that-glows-in-the-dark, but she gave up knitting, counted cross-stitch, sewing her own clothes, naps, and dusting baseboards a long time ago.

Mesu Andrews
"Once again, skilled storyteller Mesu Andrews has accomplished what so many of us wish to do--peek into the lives of cherished and sometimes mysterious Bible characters, walk with them, hear the words behind their groans, and feel the change in temperature as the shadow of the Almighty falls over them. A beautiful and important novel."
